Framed Christmas Birdies

Instructions:

Cut a piece of the flower shaping cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4". From the Festive Christmas Paper collection (sheet 12B), cut green paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" size. Cut another piece of the cardstock to 5 1/4" x 4 1/16" size. Cut two pieces of clear cardstock to just slightly smaller size. Use the largest oval from HCD2-7307 Royal Elegance Frames Die, to diecut coordinating openings into white panel, green panel, 1 of clear cardstock panels and card base. From the HCPC-31026 Christmas Lantern Cling Stamp Set, use the lantern to stamp a pattern on the bottom right and top left edges of the clear cardstock. Stamp the white panel with the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment from HCPC-31026 Christmas Lantern Cling Stamp Set. You’ll want to stamp the sentiment in Carnation Red and off onto scrap paper one time before onto the panel. Repeat this step 3 more times to create a background pattern as shown. Clean the stamp, then use the white VersaColor ink to create a shadow stamp by each of the red sentiments, then sprinkle with the Aged Ivory embossing powder and heat set. Also sponge the edges of the white panel with the same ink, sprinkle with the embossing powder and heat set. Lightly sponge the edges and top left and bottom right of oval with the Carnation Red ink. Sponge the edges of the green panel with the Leaf Green ink and attach onto card base. Attach both clear cardstock panels, one with the opening and the other with none. Then attach the white ‘Merry Christmas’ panel on top.

Using from the HCD2-7307 Royal Elegance Frames Die, diecut the decorative oval 3 times from the white cardstock. Then also diecut the same from Luxe Gold cardstock. Use the largest plain oval from same die set to diecut openings from each one. Layer the white decorative ovals on top of each other for thickness and then attach onto the gold oval at a slight offset so that it shows. Sponge the inner edges of oval with Carnation Red ink. Then use thin strips of dimensional adhesive to attach around the oval for dimension. Attach the threaded ribbon on bottom right and top left of oval opening on the card. Attach the decorative oval onto card as shown.

Stamp the holly with 3 birdies from HCPC-31027 Festive Berry & Birdies Cling Stamp Set in Olive onto the cardstock. Also stamp the holly/poinsettia with 2 birdies twice in the same ink onto the cardstock. Clean the stamps and use the gold Encore ink to stamp both images onto the Luxe gold cardstock. Stamp the sentiment from the same set in Carnation Red onto the cardstock. Diecut the images and the sentiment with the coordinating dies. Cut off bottom sections of the holly/poinsettia as you’ll only need this part of images. Cut apart the holly with 3 birdies as shown.

Use the Zig makers along with the blender to color the holly and birdies images. You’ll need the Carmine Red, Light Pink, Bright Yellow, Yellow, Pale Green, Light Green, Deep Green, Dark Brown & Beige markers to color the images. After the images are colored, apply a light touch of the Crystal Lacquer and let dry. Shape the images and layer the holly and birdies onto the coordinating gold image with hot glue. Attach onto the card as shown. Lightly sponge bottom of sentiment with the Carnation Red and attach onto center of the oval as shown. Apply the Dries Clear glue on top left and bottom right of card and sprinkle with Frosting Powder. Add some of the Gold solar glass beads too.
